we have been trying to conceive for a year now with no luck. i've been having irregular periods lately w/ no temp spikes positive ov tests. after meeting w/ our fertility doctor he gave me provera pills to take for 13 days to regulate my period and test for ovulation. well i got my period while still taking the provera and had no ovulation. my next period started about 18 days later and i had a positive ov test on day 10..i had blood work done 7 days afer ov and my progesterone was really low. my doctor had said that i was probably not ovulating, and that the positive ov test was actually a false/positive and that in fact the periods that i was having was spotting or breakthru bleeding. now he wants me to take the provera again and test for ov...i am beyond frustrated at this point and feel like i'm getting nowhere...i dont understand how my periods were just spotting when i had to change a tampon every few hours...i know i'm not ovulating and i feel i'm just wasting time now until my doctor finally prescribes something for me (clomid)
has anyone else had to deal with this??
any advice or info would be great!!

  • I really cannot stand Western fertility treatment methods, so my comments will be biased:o, but here goes: Please consider an alternative approach, a more holistic approach, to helping you conceive! Western allopathic treatment is MUCH more stressful and invasive IMO and is counterproductive to the whole process of conception... Try acupuncture - it is brilliant for infertility! I cannot recommend this highly enough. Acupuncture can help regulate the periods, and is excellent for stress. Stress is the #1 cause of infertility. period. Please try it. I have only treated two women so far, for infertility, but BOTH of them got pregnant within 6 months!:) Also, please be patient. There is no quick remedy here and the more stressed you feel, the more your periods will be irregular. Ovulation tracking is very nebulous...there is more to conception than figuring out "the right" time to conceive. Clomid has side effects and will actually thin your vaginal secretions making it harder to keep a pregnancy. Please try to find a qualified acupuncturist who is nationally certified in both acupuncture and Chinese herbology. I wish you the best of luck with this. Best wishesDOM

  • I agree with acuann. Western Medicines always have side effects and some of them are horrible. I am victim of over-prescription of antibiotics. I got fed up, and started using Homeopathy and had excellent results. You can also try Homeopathy. I am a member of NCH (National Center for Homeopathy) and i read lot of articles regarding treatment for fertlity related issues.

Yes, homeopathy is wonderful- I have used homeopathic remedies on myself and my two kids since they were babies.:) Best wishesDOM
